"consumer reports" incredibly rare that they would come out with a do not buy warning for consumers. often they say this car is better than that car but to flat out say don't buy this car because it's dangerous is something in a new league. the last time they did it was 2001. toyota of course, tamron, under incredible pressure with the gas pedal controversy and critics who say they didn't respond fast enough to that. within hours of "consumer reports" coming out with this warning to consumers, they, themselves, put a stop sales order to their dealerships nationwide. you can't go

is over. we need to come clean. that's what herb miller, toyota's then group vice president told his colleagues in an e-mail referring to the safety problems just five days before toyota announced the recall. phil lebeau joins us now. what's toyota's response? >> they are not specifically commenting about the e-mail, but they say they understand they've done a poor job of communicating. this is a copy of it. one of 70,000 document that is the federal government has been going over in looking at how toyota handled the recall for sticky gas pedals. it's clear that some toyota executives realized they had to come out and say something. although it was sent five days before the recall. one of the quotes in this -- then saying they need to work out a resolution with the national highway safety administration. as interesting as the wording is here, lawyers who have sued the company and are planning on taking the company to court, almost all say the same thing. which is great for the public fodder. not sure how much this is going to help their cases in course aside from the fact it's one mo

automaker toyota. now dealerships will stop selling the 2010 lexus gx 460 until problems with handling can be worked out. just the latest in a series of safety problems here. nbc's jeff rossen is in chicago now. all right. i guess here we go again, jeff. >> yeah. here we go with toyota once again. lexus, their luxury brand. the gx 460. consumer reports yesterday came out with that do not buy order. something they very rarely do. actually telling consumers don't buy this vehicle because it can turn over. within hours of that, toyota didn't deny there was a problem. instead they came out and said, you know what? they told all of their dealers, stop selling them. we want to identify and fix this problem. and so right now, i mean, i'm looking at the numbers here. 6,000 of these suvs were sold so far. another 1,600 are sitting at dealerships. which means that toyota will stop collecting this money that they had hoped to get from this while they try to figure out what this problem is. they're also saying that if you were one of the people that bought these 6,000 lexuses gx 460s, you can bring th

's causing all of this? >> it really is if you're ready to buy a car, do it the right way. we know toyota in the past didn't have to offer incentives. they had the best-selling model car eight of the past ten years. people were buying toyotas even without the incentives. but because of course all the recalls, the bad publicity, sales dipped tremendously low and they were forced to offer incentives and they're pretty big, on average over $2,200 per war. they have taken their market share up 41%. they almost doubled their sales in march from february. and these incentives are totally fueling this. now, the other automakers are seeing this. they're losing some market share. they know they have to keep up. it's like if you have a gas station a half-mile down the road and you own the other gas station, if he cults his price by ten cents, you have to follow. it's really kind of -- it drags actually the whole industry down in terms of incentives. there's a lot of peer pressure here and fighting for everyone's dollars. >> do you have some examples of what different carmakers are offering? >> this
